The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, has congratulated the Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on his victory in last Saturday’s presidential election.
The Ukrainian president took to Twitter to send compliments on Thursday, a day after Tinubu was declared the winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“Congratulations to @officialABAT on winning the Nigerian presidential election. I look forward to close cooperation,” he said.
“I’m convinced that 🇺🇦-🇳🇬 bilateral interaction will be strengthened. 🇺🇦 is ready to work together to overcome global challenges, including threats to food security!”
NEC declared Tinubu the winner in the small hours of Wednesday morning.
After a hard-fought battle, 70-year-old Tinubu, on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), claimed the highest number of votes — 8,794,726, almost two million votes more than his closest rival, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Abubakar, 76, who has now run for president six times, got 6,984,520 votes, while the candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, who, in less than a year, galvanized young voters in a manner some have described as unprecedented finished the race with 6,101,533.
